frivoal has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-text-3] hyphenation priority ==
The spec already says this:
> Automatic hyphenation opportunities within a word must be ignored if
 the word contains a conditional hyphen (&amp;shy; or U+00AD), in 
favor of the conditional hyphen(s). However, if, even after breaking 
at such opportunities, a portion of that word is is still too long to 
fit on one line, an automatic hyphenation opportunity may be used. 

This is good, but the same logic should be applied to words that have 
a hard hyphen in them. If we are facing "ex-patriation", it should be 
first hyphenated as "ex-" and "patriation", even if the word is in a 
hyphenation dictionary with additional hyphenation points listed.
